Best value in London! Omar's flat sits just above the financial district. We walked there everyday and took the Jubilee Line into downtown for site seeing. It is safe, clean and comfortable - especially the bed. He was an excellent communicator and very accommodating even with my unending questions. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a great value in the London area.
Omar was very accommodating and received us on our first day even though we had a very late flight in. He prepared a map and instructions were clear and helpful. Towels were provided.
The room was neat and tidy and smells really good. Everything was available and the kitchen is well-stocked. Its a good 15-20min walk away from Mile End station. This could be a hassle for those who are unfamiliar with London, or those planning to come home late at night. Public bikes are available though and there is a bus that runs through the apartment.
Otherwise we had a really good stay :)
My and my boyfriend stayed at Omar's place for four days and it was absolutely perfect. We didn't meet Omar himself, but he arranged some friends to check us in and out. Mirray and Arnaud were very both verry nice. :)
Omar's studio is everything you need when visiting London. It's close to bus stop, tube and DLR, so transportation to central London is very easy. When we arrived, we found a little snack prepared for us (biscuits, fruit, juice and milk), which was kind and made us feel welcomed.
I deffinitely recomend this place. Is clean, nice, comfortable and it smells really good. There were flowers in bedroom and even in bathroom!
Thank you, Omar, for this. :)
My son liked his stay in Omar's apartment. The apartment was clean and tidy, equipped with everything one need to live, well located and pleasant to stay. Omar is a great host, very helpful and responsive.
Omar is a great host and always willing to help answering really quick any doubts you may have.
The studio smelled really nice, everything is really clean and tidy and was overall it was cozy in a quiet neighborhood. Besides that Omar he gave us some fruits, milk, juice and cookies.
Thanks a lot!
Omar was very welcoming and friendly and my mum and sister really enjoyed their stay at his flat. The flat was really well located, really tidy and beautifully decorated (he even had real flowers in the bathroom!) and Omar even provided snacks for us, including juice, biscuits and apples. The flat is well heated, very clean and includes everything you need - Omar even printed out some local guides to restaurants and shopping places near the area, suggesting places and things to do in the evening. The flat is in a gated community type setting and looks very new! Thanks again Omar, you were a great host.
I just have good things to say about Omar as a hoster. The apartment was perfect, so clean and smelling so good! The bed os confortble, the apartment was always warm (London was so cold!) and the size is great as well. Besides all of that Omar was there waiting for us to give some local tips and also gave us some supplies as fruits, milk, juice and pro-secco! Thank you Omar :)
